Description:

Imposing mountain ranges, rustic valleys and the largest connected glaciated area in the Alps – This is a World Heritage of universal value. On the UNESCO Jungfrau-Aletsch Trail, participants in teams of 2 or 3 can discover the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch.

With 250 kilometers as well as 20,000 meters of altitude, the E250 route is considered a tough test for all participants. We pass by Sefinafurgga, Hohtürli next to Blüemlisalphütte, Gasterental and Lötschepass, Suonenwege im Wallis, Blatten-Belalp, Aletschgletscher, Fieschergletscher, Goms, Grimselpass, Haslital and Rosenlaui. The competition takes place in partial autonomy which means that each athlete has the ability to manage between the food and control posts, regardingfood, equipment, orientation and safety. The circumnavigation of the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch is a huge challenge for the athletes and will therefore be run in teams of 2 or 3 for safety reasons (whole route).

On the course there are Life bases, where the athletes can get food and rest. In addition, there will be refreshment facilities along the course. As a participant you will feed yourself independently between the posts and must carry the mandatory gear as stated in the race regulations.
